Intern Testimonial

“Getting to work with an incredibly dedicated group of people who love theatre made my summer so much fun. While you do have to be very flexible and willing to switch gears, seeing the festival come together at the end is so worth it. I loved meeting the talented actors, playwrights, and directors who came to my hometown. I’ve made so many good connections, which is definitely helpful since I plan to go into the acting industry someday.” 
-Cristina Jantz, Production Intern, PlayFest 2019
